    Description

    The Order of Liberator San Martin Original Presentation in Box with Sash (ca. 1945-60s),
    Ross & Stahl, p.47 - Ar59. An extremely rare Argentine order, established in 1943 and representing the highest award given by the country. The Order of Liberator San Martin includes the original Grand Cross (78mm), Star (85mm) and Knight (45mm). They are of mixed composition, with gilt-silver, silver and enamel being primary components. The Grand Cross and Star were to be worn on a light blue and white sash, which remains included with the original box from maker Ricciardi of Buenos Aires, Mar del Plata and Paris. Awarded only to foreign nationals, a list of recipients and possible past owners of this set include President Juan Antonio Rios of Chile, HM Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain and President Rafael Caldera of Venezuela. While the medals remain in essentially as-issued condition, aging of the box and light soiling of the sash suggest an age of no less than 50 years. An immensely important offering for the collector of orders and decorations.


    Estimate: $9,000 - $15,000.
